Horror is an emotion first and a setting later. It’s the only genre that is directly named after an emotion, and that gives horror a universal appeal. It also makes each person’s experience and interpretation personal.
We close out June, Pride Month, with a celebration of the contributions the LGBTQ community has brought to the horror genre since the creation of the Gothic novel.
My guest is Waylon Jordan, the Associate Editor for iHorror.com, one of the largest online horror resources in the world. Waylon writes Horror Pride Month, a series of articles that chronicle the history and the present of queer horror and he graciously comes onto the show to expand on the discussion.
I hope you enjoy the show!
